#Roommates, the fallout from Travis Scott’s Astroworld tragedy continues weeks after the deadly music festival claimed the lives of 10 people—and now Travis has been pulled from one of the biggest music festivals in the world, despite offering to perform for free. According to recent reports, following the news that Travis Scott was dropped from Coachella, he reportedly then offered to perform without pay…and was still denied.

@YahooNews reports, not only will Travis Scott not make his return to the stage via a headlining show at Coachella in 2022—apparently the music festival’s organizers don’t even want him to perform for free. Following Coachella’s producer Goldenvoice officially dropping Travis Scott as the headliner for its April 2022 three-day festival, Travis’ booking agent Cara Lewis, reportedly presented the offer that he would instead perform for free…but that offer was quickly declined.

This is the latest incident in the extreme fallout from Travis’ Astroworld festival last month that sadly claimed the lives of 10 people, injured dozens of others and has resulted in multiple lawsuits totaling in the hundreds of billions. He was initially announced as the Coachella headliner back in 2019, but with the rise of COVID-19 the festival was pushed back until April 2022. As of now, Coachella will now only have two headliners, Rage Against The Machine and Swedish House Mafia.

As we previously reported, earlier this month Travis Scott gave his first interview since the Astroworld tragedy to Charlamagne Tha God. When asked how he was feeling following the incident, he stated, “I been on about different type emotions, emotional roller coaster I mean. It gets so hard cause I always felt so connected with my fans. I went through something, and I feel like fans went through something, it hurts. It hurts a community, it hurts a city. It’s just been a lot of thoughts and a lot of feelings, grieving and just tryna wrap my head around it.”

He also explained that he didn’t hear any screams or cries for help during his performance:

“Nah man…and it’s so crazy I’m that artist too. Any time you can hear something like that, you want to stop the show. You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need. Any time I could see anything like that, I did. I stopped like a couple of times to make sure everybody was okay.”

As of now, Travis Scott has not publicly responded to being dropped from the Coachella festival.
